New Book Revisits Daft Punk’s First-Ever Interview and Unmasked Cover Shoot

Daft Punk may no longer be together, but we're not ready to stop reliving the duo's golden days just yet.

Fortunately, Disco Pogo's forthcoming book, Daft Punk – We Were The Robots, makes it easy to rediscover and celebrate the duo's many historic achievements. 

The hardback book aggregates the stories, interviews and photographs that shaped Daft Punk's meteoric rise to greatness, including several gems from the pre-internet era that may have otherwise been lost deep in the electronic music archives, like handwritten notes and drawings.

Much of the book covers Daft Punk through the lens of their earliest media appearances, including their first-ever interview. The chat was printed in Jockey Slut, a British publication which ran from 1993 to 2004.
